Barcelona star Lionel Messi has warned the club not to sign Chelsea flop Alvaro Morata in replacement for departed Munir El haddadi, according reports from Spain.
It is understood that the Argentine international has an influence on who or not Barca should sign in the January transfer window.
And according to Spanish news media outlet Diario Gol, Messi is not impressed with the Spaniard’s performances with Chelsea this season.
Morata has only managed to score seven goals in all competitions after being handed another chance to prove himself following the arrival of Maurizio Sarri in the summer.
Gonzalo Higuain has been taunted to replace the misfiring Morata as a loan deal for the Argentine striker is believed will be sealed this week.
Higuain was not listed in AC Milan’s 2-0 win over Genoa on Tuesday, January 21, which means talks are ongoing for the 30-year-old to reunite with his boss at Stamford Bridge.
On the other hand, Morata is expected to join Atletico Madrid on loan with an option of the deal being made permanent after he was spotted in the Spanish capital.
Reports claim the 26-year-old will sign a deal in the next few hours if an agreement is reached between Chelsea and Atletico.
Meanwhile, Continentour.com.ng had earlier reported that Spanish La Liga campaigners Atletico Madrid are reportedly in talks with Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata over a return to Spain before the transfer window closes.
The 26-year-old Spanish footballer is currently struggling for form this season at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is said to have lost faith in him.
